you always have to train incoming personnel in the domain knowledge

I have often said the same. It is better to retain staff ond upskill them on technical knowledge than to use what HR call 'fresh blood' with the technical skill but without history on how their particular organisation ticks. Technical domain skills are (in theory) easy to acquire; but business domain is specific to an organisation and cannot be simply bought in. Business domain include how the organisation works and how the code base that supports it works; they are one-offs, even if the organisation is using an industry standard package. I've been in my current job for over 5 years and there are huge swathes of the business side that I have not fathomed (especially their software base).
